To clarify: I'm an ED2 applicant, just so I don't get any RD applicants any more nervous because I know decisions aren't out yet. I think..
I have already said yes on the waitlist website thing I got through email.
I've emailed my regional admissions officer (got no reply, but I did...hope he read it?)
What can I possibly do? Should I submit additional letter of recs, explain my life (I've dealt with immigration, learning a new language, as well as being first-generation, low income, and only English speaking member of family) that I hadn't mentioned in my original Common App?
Honestly, I heard Emory only admits about 5% off their waitlist... so there's probably not much chance, but I'd rather try everything I can before I give up.
